祖父罕见托利酒

“祖父”之名可追溯至1915年,当时留出一桶顶级混酿托利酒,以备为Penfolds家庭专用。根据其混酿成分中最古老的托利酒的年份,这种葡萄酒被命名为祖父托利酒。
祖父罕见托利酒核心成分有幕尔维德、设拉子、赤霞珠和歌海娜(但并不限于这些成分),葡萄主要选用专为加强型供果的葡萄园。

Penfolds祖父罕见托利酒仅用自流酒液,并专门根据Penfolds风格,选用低强度加强烈酒。这种烈酒进一步浓缩了优质果实特点,增加葡萄酒的复杂度,促进无缝融合。

每年,加强型葡萄酒的酿造都会将祖父托利酒纳入考虑,精选批次在桶中陈化约八年时间。将达到熟化标准和祖父品质标准的葡萄酒进行调和,然后加入“祖父索雷拉”系统。在六级索雷拉系统中,祖父酒将陈化约十二年,使平均年龄达到20年以上,然后才能装瓶。

在长时间陈化的过程中,祖父罕见托利酒的浓度和复杂度将与口感的厚重度、结构、复杂度与甜度一起改进。

History
The Grandfather name dates back to 1915, when an oak cask containing the finest blend of available Tawny material was set aside for the exclusive use of the Penfold family. This wine was known as The Grandfather due to the age of the oldest Tawny in the blend. 
Taste Description

Colour
Deep tawny with a distinctive yellow-green edge characteristic of extended wood maturation.

Nose
Intense raisin fruits, fruitcake, liquorice, roasted walnuts all integrated together seamlessly with a freshness contradicting age.

Palate
Classical Penfolds fruitcake, liquorice and vanillin oak flavours with a sweet full and round mid-palate, and a finish that persists on and on.

Vintage Conditions

As Grandfather is matured utilising a Solera system all vintages introduced into the system are retained forever. This system of maturation ensures freshness, consistency of quality and style is sustained over the decades. The Solera currently contains vintages from 1960 to 2004. Including some 44 individual vintages in the Solera is testament to the complexity and age yet also highlights the importance of freshness and fruit.

Spirit Selection

A specially selected ex-still fortifying spirit that has a distinctive aroma and flavour. The selected spirit traditionally has a strength between 78 and 85%v/v and must have the power and intensity to combine with the 20 years of age concentration and complexity without presenting as the dominant character.

While spirit is the main driver of style in younger wines it becomes a less dominant contributor in wines of this age as the aged components take the forefront. 

情况说明

Origin: Multi-regional blend, South Australia. 

Maturation: The initial maturation for Grandfather occurs as individual vintage and varietal components. These components remain in the same seasoned old oak hogsheads for approximately 14 years, before being selected and blended to form the topping wine. This topping wine is then introduced into the first stage of the Solera. The Solera is comprised of six individual stages with stage six supplying the wine for bottle at a minimum average blended age of twenty years.

Variety: All Penfolds tawny styles are created using a core selection of varieties made up of Mourvedre, Shiraz, Cabernet, and Grenache but are not limited to these varieties.
